George Zimmerman sure is a good friend.

The killer of Trayvon Martin, repeatedly accused assaulter of women and sometimes artist wants to help out the Florida Gun Supply shop.

Last month Florida Gun Supply decided to declare their store a "Muslim-Free Zone" in a video backdropped by a confederate flag. The Florida branch of the Council on Islamic Relations decided that was not a very nice thing to and so is suing the gun shop in federal court for discrimination.

Enter: George Zimmerman.

Remember when he painted a flag with some words on it and sold it for $100,000? Well he wants to do that again to help this struggling, xenophobic gun shop.



Zimmerman plans to sell prints of this painting and the original to help with Florida Gun Supply's owner Andy Hallinan for his gosh darn hard luck. Like it says on their website:



George Zimmerman is teaming up with Florida Gun Supply to offer signed and numbered prints of his Confederate Flag painting. This painting was painted in honor of Andy Hallinan for being a true patriot and leading the country into a better, safer America. Zimmerman's last painting sold on Ebay for over $100,000.



They even made a little BFF movie about it.



What else are friends for other than to paint and sell a controversial symbol to support intolerant business practices?

Outkast deserves to be on a Confederate monument.

Controversies over government-sponsored Confederate memorabilia have reached a fever pitch lately, culminating in the removal over the Confederate flag from the South Carolina statehouse. There are some remembrances of the pro-slavery secessionists that will be much harder to remove.

For instance, there is this carving on Stone Mountain, Georgia, which displays Confederate leaders Stonewall Jackson, Robert E. Lee, and Jefferson Davis.



As a growing segment of our culture wants to (finally) shed these remnants honoring a Civil War based around slavery, growing questions persist about how to adapt these monuments.

Enter, artist Mack Williams.

He has a simply brilliant idea for how to 'adjust' that Stone Mountain carving.



That's right. Williams has set up a petition on MoveOn.org to add Georgia's own Outkast to the monument, putting them right up there with former Confederate leader Jefferson Davis.

The petition explains it fully:

I believe it's important to recognize the history and heritage of all Georgians. However, the carving of Davis, Lee, and Jackson on the side of Stone Mountain only represents a small, regrettable time in the history of the Peach State. It's high time we added a bit more of our history and culture to this monument.

By no means do we wish to erase or destroy the current carving, which, regardless of its context, is an impressive and historic work of art. We simply wish to add new carvings, of Atlanta hip-hop duo Outkast, to the mountainside. There's plenty of room.

I believe that Daddy Fat Sacks and Three Stacks should be carved riding in a Cadillac (as is their wont). This will help the new carving blend nicely with the Confederates who are on horseback.

Outkast are two of the greatest Georgians in the history of our state. It's about time the Empire State of the South paid proper tribute to them, while also improving a great monument and tourist attraction.



Look at it again!





Look how happy Andre 3000 and Big Boi are to be up there

The two dope boyz in a Cadillac have remained relatively silent on the matter, although Big Boi has retweeted it a few times, which constitutes approval, right?

So, what are you waiting for? Sign that petition and let Stone Mountain more adequately represent Georgia's people.
